How do I submit a video?
You simply need to shoot a 60 video clip of yourself talking up your idea. Then upload that video to Youtube. Once that is complete, simply fill out the entry form, and thats it! We will post all of the video submissions, and will notify the top 10 entries one week prior to the event.
Whats the format for the “Live” event on February 12th?
The top 10 videos submitted to the SPN site will present their idea LIVE at Nomad Lounge on February 12th starting @ 7:30pm. Each presenter will get 5 minutes to further explain their business or idea. The audience will vote on who’s idea they think is the best, and the winner will be awarded the $1000 prize.

In the 60 second video, simply WOW us with your passion for the idea. In the 5 minute pitch, give us a sense for the potential market, its viability, why its innovative, and why you’re excited about the concept.
